No, it didn't use a pistol round. It used an intermediate round, the
7.92x33mm, which is similar to the 7.62x39mm round used in the AK47 and
AKM. It was designated as "MP" because Hitler believed that a full-power
rifle and a submachine gun were the best weapons for the infantryman, so it
was designated Maschinen Pistole 43/44 to hide the fact that it fired an
intermediate round from Hitler. When he learned about it, he liked it so
much he changed the name to StG, or Sturmgewehr.
I think so too. ... ( 11 months ago by grimmerMD)
I think so too. Sure the MG42's 1200 rpm fire rate is frightening, but just
the idea of getting hit with even one high velocity 12.7mm wide chunk of
lead weighing up to 52 grams in the belly or pelvis makes me cringe.

Just F.Y.I, the MP 44 was actually the successor to the Schweisser, or
MP-40 sub machine-gun and had a shorter barrel than the STEG-44

equal of the Bren.

It was an Assaultrifle , not an automatic rifle or an smg or mg . The first
of it's class it still did a horrific job at what it was designed for ,
giving troops a tool to engage enemy infantry at all ranges . Selective
firemodes , great accuracy , good handling , a lot of scary firepower and
the predecessor to every modern assault rifle in service today .

Why would they show us an MP44 and call it an AK47 ??

Funny @ 31:00 the documentary starts talking about the AK but, shows the
image of a STG-44. It is a fact that Hugo Schmeisser - the designer of the
STG-44 was pressed into service to work under Kalashnkov - Schmeisser
mysteriously died in 53'. Both rifles had the same type of gas operated
system, 30 rd banana mags and similiar medium range type ammo. ??? You make
your own conclusions... Russians often copied many of American military
aircraft as well. Just some food for thought.

Oh yes. just another example of re-writing history by the US through
talking about guns.
Remember your first engagement with battle hardened army of Germany at
Kasserine Pass ??? The British who you so often dismiss in your writing of
history or put in a bad light actually did come to your aid.. after you
lost 8500 of your brave men. Some of us know how it all came to pass.
America is the land of Opportunists. Not Opportunity.

The germans facing the british at mons in world war one thought they were
facing machine guns,, The british were very well trained and able to fire
something like 20 25 shots per minute from a rifle.
Times that by a lot of people firing and you get the machine gun effect.
